30 Screenshots of the multiplatform RPG NieR, as well as an image of rather large enemies.
I hope this is the Japanese version. And a very early build, cuz it looks pretty bad. EDIT: Yep Japanese version. I hope it looks better when it releases.
So I'm not the only gamer who think this game looks like crap? And you know that the two versions of the game are going to be 360 and PS3, right? That what you're seeing now is what you get? That the burly guy will be the 360 version while "emo stick" will be PS3.
The screens are a combination of the two: The Japanese version of Nier offer a young protagonist: http://www.rpgland.com/cont... The worldwide release offer an older guy: http://www.rpgland.com/cont...
However, it's from the Cavia team, who made Drakengard (one of my favorite series of all time), so I'll probably pick this up anyhow. Maybe I'll get lucky and this will get the "budget" pricing like 3D DOT Heroes and Last Rebellion ($39.99 and $49.99, respectively). SE is publishing the game though, and they are such money whores that I doubt we'll see a lower price on this; until it hits the bargain bin, that is. I don't mind purchasing trash JRPG games (as I'm an addict), especially if they have a lower sticker price.
I'm more curious about this game than FF13 to be honest.
People use RPG too liberally these days. I could have sworn this was an action game like Ninja Gaiden or Devil May Cry. And yes...a very poor-looking one. Looks unimpressive in screenshots and even worse in motion. I can forgive graphics, but the gameplay looks as jerky as a round of Mortal Kombat. Needs to get better very soon.
